background checks wouldn't have done anything for sandy hook. do you realize background checks wouldn't have done anything for virginia tech. they didn't do anything for jared lee loughner. and it's not because the law failed. it's because people who are supposed to follow the law failed. and piers, i put this question to you again. what good are laws if people don't follow them? >> right. so you still maintain that we just have to put more and more guns out there and america will be safer. >> i don't maintain anything. you can put words into my mouth all you want to. >> do you believe that? >> piers, let me tell you something. >> do you believe more guns would lead to less gun crime? >> let me -- let me answer you. i am never, ever going to do anything that is going to somehow limit someone's ability to protect themselves. and speaking as someone who's actually had to deal with this, let me tell you something, piers, i've been in this situation, where i've had to protect myself. i have two children. i've had my life threatened. i've had my children's lives threatened. and i went to the poli

's happening. do you remember right after the tragedies that took place in sandy hook elementary school? the president and others were asked questions about how about having police officers on these elementary school campuses? and the answer was, we don't want guns in school. well, the answer though is really, the exact opposite of that. what the n.r.a. and others said is the answer, security personnel in elementary schools and other events and you had that by the way, sporting events, you have armed security, you have it on college campuses. it's focusing on the wrong issue. this fbi said that the assault weapon ban of 1994 did nothing to lower crime and does anybody that's watching this broadcast now think that a signed poster that said do not carry your weapon in this area would prevent what happened in sandy hook. and what about the hipaa laws when a professional finds out, what happens. >> and one of the weapons used at sandy hook, bush master, mr-14. before the patent on the m-16 was expired. it was-- >> domestic. but it can fire 45 shots in a minute by squeezing the trigger, this

the horrific mass murder of children and faculty at sandy hook elementary in connecticut there were many pledges of thoughtful and thorough efforts to prevent such atrocities. supposedly, everything would be on the table, not just access to firearms by criminals or mentally deranged people, but the mental health care system shall the role of violence in hollywood television and video games. and it was also going to be an honest review of possible changes in the law that would be based on hard data, not just the political agenda of one side. well, so much for that. as many of us feared, there will be no executive orders or proposed legislation that might rile the president's hollywood pals. none of the legislation proposed so far is really about comprehensive mental health care reform. it's all about firing up the same old plans from the left, to pass new laws that will limit the freedoms of citizens who haven't broken any laws. emotional rational has been, as the president said this week, if there's even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there's even one life that can be sa
at sandy hook. at least 1131 has died from gun violence. that's about 43 towns like newtowns. lydia was shot and her mother were shot while they were preparing for a birthday party for lydia's little brother. sheher mother survived but she didn't. she leaves behind three children. another senseless life taken away in america. question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. >> obama: and each day brings further evidence that the way we harness the sun, the wind and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. >> michael: that was the only shout out the environment got during president obama's 2009 inaugural address. now with hurricane sandy, a record-breaking drought it sound like the president may be moved from reaction to action. >> obama: we will respond to the threat of climate change knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging firesser and c
because it was in the senate version of sandy and it was not put in to the senate -- the house version of sandy. so no, we cannot -- we cannot move money we already have to address the needs and deficiencies that the arb has recommends we do. >> well, i would just echo the comments that have been made already by this committee and by you that this is action that we need to get moving on immediately because we still have people at risk around the world. we need to take the action that's going to ensure their security. so i would certainly urge the chairman and ranking member to move the committee to do everything we can to make this happen. and i want to go back to something that the secretary sni said because i asked about the cooperation between the department of defense and state. and what the situation was on the ground before the benghazi attack in terms of the placement of our military in the region. he talked about the unprecedented cooperation between state and defense in response to benghazi. but i wonder if you could talk about how we ensure that this is a standard way of doin

sandy hook so we had 26 and 20 of them children are all dead so what difference does it make what kind of gun the shooter used or whether he was crazy. what difference does it make? it makes a lot of difference. we want to prevent it from happening again and hold those responsible who are indeed accountable for the crime f. a drunk driver kills a child in a car accident, we don't say what difference does it make? we want to know why did he get drunk and drive. it makes all of the difference in the world . americans still don't know the answers and we have a right to demand what they are. kentucky senator ram paul said he would have relieved her of her post if he was president and he was equally as tough on the man who was to succeed her. things got heated when senator paul asked kerry about the recent controversial aid package to egypt. >> you heard president morsi's comments about zionist and israelis being blood suckers and descendants was apes and pigs. do you think it is wise to send them f-16. >> i think those comments are reprehensible and degrading and unacceptable by anybody's

of sandy, the heels of last year's draught was one of the worst in our country's history going back to the dust bowl, you'd think there would be wind sailing in the right direction. >> that's right. he's putting something in the agenda that wasn't. we already had the pipeline to capitol hill so clogged. these three new fiscal cliffs coming up, gun control, energy infrastructure. he's putting this at the head of the line. immigration actually and even gun control got very little attention here. he mentioned newtown but only in passing. >> so do you think he held some stuff back for the state of the union? >> definitely. the state of the union will be more a blue print, a road map, but here he's talking for history. over the years this president has rightly been criticized for not telling his own narrative, for not putting out a frame, for not connecting his own dots, telling his own story. here was the president doing it. he's writing the history book for himself. this is what he wants the history books to say about barack obama. >> mike allen, president it, as always. see you soon o
this other story, there's been a lot of discussion about guns in schools, and guns in general after the sandy hook sad situation in december in connecticut. and now there's a kindergarten girl who apparently owns one of these little devices, you look at the screen at hello kitty bubble gun. apparently, she was talking about this toy at school. it's my understanding she actually didn't even have the toy with her at the mt. carmel area school in pennsylvania. as a result of just talking about shooting bubbles at one another, apparently she received a ten-day suspension. it was reduced to two days, but that's kind of unclear now whether or not she should even have faced any kind of suspensi suspension. >> steve: well, this is kind of crazy the two five-year-old girls were waiting at the bus, hey, i'm going to shoot you with my hello kitty bubble machine and somebody overheard it and next thing you know, just because people are, you know, freaked out about guns since sandy hook, the school got involved. and she was suspended for ten days, and then reduced it to two. but she was also given, becaus
and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him. he pulled the proposal because conservative republicans said the bill was loaded with pork with projects not related to the storm and they should've gone through the normal appropriations process. a couple days later, he narrowly hung onto his speakership as 10 republicans did not vote for him. now -- and right after that, they ended up passing a hurricane sandy bill. even that only received 49 republican votes. all that as a backdrop, house leaders last week went to williamsburg to figure out the task force on the debt ceiling on the across-the-board spending cuts known as the sequester, coming up. also, at the end of march, we have the continuing resolution, because the senate has not passed a full budget and the two chamber is not agree to a budget, but they have been working off a continuing resolution which funds the government for certain amount of time. it will end on march 27. house leaders tried to put
had a derailment because of it. we had record fires. we had record levels of damage from sandy, $70 billion. if we can't see the downside of spending that money and risking lives for all the changes that are taking place, to agriculture, to our communities, the ocean and so forth, we are ignoring what science is telling us. i will be a passionate advocate on this not based on ideology but based on facts and science. and i hope to sit with all of you and convince you that this $6 trillion market is worth millions of american jobs and we better go after it. >> to my good friend senator barrasso, wyoming is a producer state, new mexico is also a producer state and i found the same experience that senator kerry has talked about in massachusetts, in new mexico, the fastest growing sector these renewable jobs. so i think it's a big opportunity for us. we should be pursuing it. i agree with what he just said and i hope we can work with each other, because we should try to pull together and discuss the facts and really pursue this sector that is going to be so vital to the future and vital

to get that included in the senate version of the sandy supplemental that passed on december 28th. we were unable to get that included in the house version. this is not new money. first and foremost i would appreciate this committee working with the counterpart to give us this transfer authority. otherwise we are going to be behind the curve again. secondly i think it's important to change the laws about best value contracting versus lowest price technically qualified. by statute the state department guard contracts in dangerous places like libya and everywhere except iraq and afghanistan must be awarded using a lowest price technically acceptable selection process. we have requested a change in the legislation that would allow us to use some discretion to try to deal with the varieties of the local guard forces. we currently have it in afghanistan and pakistan, but it's going to expire. that's something else that i would ask the committee to look into. finally the point that the chairman made and you echoed, congressman, an authorization, i was on the armed serf service committee. it

want to make this ban permanent -- >> in the case of sandy, it was chuck full of them. it got chris christie very upset because the greater good -- >> we're in a new congress, and that is a danger. you're absolutely right. this is why we need to have a legislative ban. the american people get this. they don't send people to congress anymore to see how much you can spend. they want to see how much we can save. people get we're in a bad place fiscally, and wasting money on these indefensible projects has to end. >> are you troubled that message didn't get through to the president? only mentioned deficit once in his speech. never mention edit at -- debt at all. >> there wasn't enough message about economic growth. certainly nationalment over the overspending. this president doesn't think we overspend. that's a very sad and very difficult situation, but, hey have to do what we can in congress. if we can avoid sending in bloated bills, it's hard for him to insert things in. we have to fight this on all fronts because we're not on a sustainable fiscal path and we have to get there for th
this country and by local ymcas. in the aftermath of the enormous tragedy of sandy hook elementary school there's been an outpouring of bipartisan support for including the mental-health care system in this nation. in fact, the task force explicitly endorse mental-health first eight. is a common policy thread running through all these proposals in some sort of fashion they all endorse early detection of mental illness. you see mental-health first aid as part of the solution to the problems facing our country today. from a prevention standpoint. exactly what the program does. it permits us to intervene early, to help allies and say these individuals who are in desperate need and attentive basement of health services. last week representative ron barber introduced the mental-health first eight act of 2013, h.r. 274. and a reseller to vice president like, congressman barber wrote the holiday i urge you to endorse commonsense bipartisan proposals like the mental-health first eight act. we have failed to give the mental-health needs. we have paid too high a price for this neglect. everyday we see t
